The far left hates Koch brothers, and so Time felt distorting his tweet against bombs/weapons, into a claim that he's pro-bombing, is par for the propagandists course.


Here's what Time put in its tweet, to misquote Koch:

❝ If we make more bombs, the GDP goes up — particularly if we explode them ❞

Here's what Charles Koch actually said:

❝ I think we can have growth rates in excess of 4%. When I’m talking about growth rates, I’m not talking about that GDP, which counts poison gas the same as it counts penicillin. What a monstrous measure this is. If we make more bombs, the GDP goes up — particularly if we explode them. ❞


If you think they represented what he said fairly, then you might be an NPR supporter.
